Hello group, 


I have setup 3 simple shares from *nix with 3 Windoze clients. The shares
work perfect when first created, however, after 10~15 minutes of usage the
shares are returned to their default permissions and the clients lose their
ability to connect to the shares. I did an ls -l on the shares and noticed
that their permissions changed after the time with no user or administrator
interaction.  Currently, I am using Mandrake Linux 10.1 (download edition)
and Samba version (3.0.7). Again, thank you for all or any of your help. And
I apologize for the incomplete posting from earlier.
